A "Professional Development Unit" or PDU is a PMI measuring unit to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.  A PDU is earned based on continued development of project management skills and volunteer work benefiting the project management community such as within the local PMI chapter.  These units, earned over a 3 year period after earning your certification credential (i.e. PMP) go towards being able to renew your certification for another 3 year period.

**Please note 1 PDU = 1 hour of learning

PMI allows 0.25 increments to be entered into the system, i.e. 15 mins = 0.25 hours, 30 mins = 0.50 hours
